Out of State Teaching Certification

If you are certified in another state, the state of Texas requires that you apply for a review of teaching credentials.
  • Complete application and pay $180 non-refundable fee
  • Submit official transcripts from all universities and colleges
  • Submit copies of all certificates, front and back

Once you have completed the teaching credential review and are found eligible a one year certification will be issued. During this period you must complete the appropriate tests in the state of Texas. However, if you have completed a comparable test, you may request an exemption. Once this is all completed, you may apply for standard certification.
